3 Psychedelic Drugs You Probably Haven’t Heard About: and Why You Should Avoid them!

These 3 psychedelic drugs can cause some very negative side effects.

Although many psychedelics are not addictive and researchers are currently studying them for medicinal uses, a few are extremely dangerous. Unfortunately, this does not stop people from using them recreationally. These dangerous psychedelic drugs should be avoided at all costs. Three psychedelics that you should definitely avoid are synthetic cannabis, straight ergot, and Jimson Weed. All three of these are extremely dangerous particularly to those who do not know what they are doing.

Synthetic Cannabis

According to Forbes Magazine, synthetic marijuana was only for research purposes and its creator doesn’t understand why it is being used recreationally. They are researching it as an alternative to the natural substances found in marijuana. Unfortunately, it has some nasty consequences when taken incorrectly. It produces symptoms such as:

  • extreme cardiac arrhythmia,
  • chest pain,
  • stroke,
  • kidney damage,
  • hallucinations,
  • paranoia,
  • vomiting, and
  • extreme psychosis.

It is one of the more dangerous synthetic drugs on the market today and is responsible for overdoses, psychotic behavior, and deaths all over the United States.

Ergot

ergot

Ergot is a dangerous psychedelic drug.

Ergot is an odd type of mold that many associate with the Salem Witch Trials and thousands of cases of “demon possession,” in less informed days. This mold grows on rye seed and anything made from seeds containing the mold is extremely dangerous. It causes permanent psychosis and death. The side effects of straight ergot are:

  • intestinal upset,
  • cramping,
  • vomiting,
  • seizures,
  • hallucinations, and
  • constrictions of the blood vessels.

What is odd about ergot is that in its refined form, it is LSD, a popular hallucinogen that has very few of the same side effects.

Jimson Weed

This was once a very popular psychedelic in Europe. It is extremely powerful and when taken in large doses it causes permanent insanity followed by unconsciousness, and death. These beautiful white flowers are attractive when you see them but they are deadly. When someone overdoses on Jimson, it produces a permanent hallucinogenic effects. This is because it contains:

  • hycoscyamine,
  • scopolamine, and
  • atropine.

In high doses all of these substances are extremely dangerous.

One of the odd things about this flower is that people still use it to treat swine flu, regular flu, asthma, and coughs. It only works for these conditions under very controlled doses. According to the New Mexico State University, it should never be ingested directly. It contains other poisons that are just as deadly.

These three powerful psychedelics should never be taken recreationally. They are extremely dangerous and can quickly cause permanent damage to the body and brain. Most people who take them wind up with the majority of their more unpleasant side effects. Large quantities of each of these drugs are either incapacitating or deadly.

If you are considering trying any of these drugs do not do it. Many of those who use them recreationally wind up in the hospital or the morgue. For more information on any of these psychedelics please call 1-800-895-1695.
